TULSA, Oklahoma - Dozens of college students now have jobs thanks to an aeronautics job fair.

More than 80 companies came to Tulsa looking for aircraft maintenance employees.

Employers including Boeing, Alaska Air, and Nordam were on hand at Spartan College of Aeronautics.

“Right now, there is a company sitting down writing out a job offer.  So, it’s happening today,” said Jamie Kidder, Dean of Students at Spartan.

Spartan says there is an industry-wide shortage of skilled workers in aerospace.
